Apple says new iOS will help battle smartphone addiction

The watchOS update comes with new workout modes like yoga

Apple has just launched its new iPhone models - iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. A12 Bionic is the smartest and most powerful chip ever in a smartphone, and is designed for performance in mind with Core ML, ARKit, Metal, and more. There is also a new recommendation engine that showcases content based on what you have purchased and Apple editors will also be curating reading lists.

Arriving a week after iOS 12, which will be released to the unwashed masses on 17 September, macOS Mojave will be supported by virtually every Mac device that has shipped since mid-2012.

On older iPhones like the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s, the iOS 12 GM build boots faster than iOS 11.4.1 - the last stable release of iOS 11. Those app developers and early adopters already running the iOS 12 beta have reported great improvements on older devices.

As you can imagine, mileage will vary depending on the age of the device, the number of apps and amount of data installed on the hardware, and the general wear and tear that has been placed on the device over the course of its lifetime.

Trump ‘wants US$200 billion in China tariffs despite talks’
If both sets of tariffs go ahead it would mean virtually all of China's United States exports would be subject to new tariffs. Trump said last week that he also had tariffs on an additional $267 billion worth of goods ready "on short notice if I want".

Well, as you can see, the performance improvements on iOS 12 GM are definitely there. Users on the beta build will have to head over to the Software Update section and download the update once notified. It is advised they do so directly from the iPhone or iPad they will be updating to iOS 12.

Users should then hit the "sign up" button at the bottom of the page and use their existing Apple ID login details. Users must agree to the terms and conditions in order to advance.

Clicking on it will bring up an install box and the user will subsequently be asked to type in their iOS device passcode. The configuration profile should then download and install. After that happens go to settings and check for an update. So basically, people had no control over how things worked until Battery Health showed up, and ultimately iOS 12, which had big bold claims regarding performance across the board.
